37 Weeks

I can't believe I haven't updated since last Wednesday.  Time is really getting away from me.  We've scheduled an induction for the 22nd if I haven't had him before then...so 12 days. Eeek! 


How far along? 37 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Still about 1 lb. a week. 
Stretch marks? no
Sleep: I think I'm preparing for the newborn stage of not much sleep because it hasn't been so good.
Best moment this week: Just spending lots of time with Sawyer.  I'm really trying to savor every moment before his little world is rocked.
Movement: he's still poking and jabbing me
Food cravings: sweets - but my Dr. advised me to try and avoid sugar because that makes the baby pack on the weight and a bigger baby is harder to deliver...I'm doing the best I can!
Gender: Boy
Labor Signs: I've actually had a few contractions....very irregular but still exciting!
Belly Button in or out? further out every day!
What I miss: nothing really.  I still actually feel pretty good.  I have my moments but overall I can't complain. 
What I am looking forward to: Friday -- this is my last week working and then I am officially on maternity leave!
Weekly Wisdom: I'm not doing this question next time -- I never have any!
Milestones: 37 weeks - baby is officially full term!

I had actually made a little more progress at my last Dr.'s appt.  I was 80% effaced and 1cm dilated.  I was so excited - you would of thought he said I was in labor!  Ha!  I wasn't at a 1 with Sawyer until the day before I was due so this was huge to me.  I'm really hoping I continue to progress over the next 2 weeks.

Praying for you to have a happy healthy delivery and a happy healthy baby boy. I'm sure Sawyer will be a wonderful big brother.
